I saw some gluten enzymes in my local natural foods store yesterday and thought of all my foods I will never have again...A nice big sub from my favorite sub shop, a regular beer, chicken fingers...And then I woke up and put them back! It just isn't worth it to me!
I have a friend that has this and ironically she lectured ME that it is not to be used to cheat but that is what she uses it for! She cannot pass up cake.
I shook my head at her....
I agree that it is best to just stay gluten free...and if you have been accidentally "glutened" how could you know in time to take the pill? You are supposed to take enzymes with the meal as far as I know.
I say just stay away from gluten, who wants the pain if that product does not work.
Reactions to accidental or on-purpose gluten ingestion vary widely. I would distrust any product that purports to fix that problem. If you understand what the biological-physical issues are in your gut, it would be impossible for any "additive" (or drug-like) compound to prevent or ease the absorption of gluten. It ain't gonna happen, folks.
Personally, I can only compare how I feel without gluten to make it clear that if some kind of craving hits, I re-direct that to something that I know is good for me. Unfortunately for all of us on this continuum from gluten intolerance to Celiac Disease, the FIX is the same: NO GLUTEN, PERIOD, END OF STORY.
I am a gluten intolerant person but with the gluten weakness, other weaknesses are all too common along with it. I cannot eat or chew processed food; gum is processed food in my sensitive migraine pained head if I try. A bloody nose happens when the pain rides for hours. In my book, none of this is worth a piece of gum. I chew homemade beef jerky and other foods I feel benefits my reasons to chew.

I may not recognize the significance until some time later.
Is my resistance to change really that strong?

Didn't Walksfar, who has DH, try something like this about three years ago? I'm not sure it's the exact same product, but she said it didn't work for her.
I, personally, wouldn't, but I'm celiac. I know there are clinical trials in the works by Dr. Fasano/U of MD for something along this idea and probably better? I trust him. This might be helpful for eating out cross-contamination issues, but it wouldn't change a thing about my trying to eat gf and staying "clean" as it were.
I do note that the product is not intended for "celiac" and some other GI affected people.

Here's someone's experience with Glutenzyme: www.celiactravel.com/glutenzyme.html
Do you know already what your reactions are when glutened intentional or not? I'd be interested to know of your experience when you use it. Good luck. Keep us posted.

KNOWLEDGE = POWER. BODY = TEMPLE. FOOD = MEDICINE. PREVENTION IS THE CURE. YOU ARE WHAT YOU ABSORB!
One person's food is another person's poison.

I 2nd GFnomad. Plus I've seen it in my local health food store(IE local Whole Foods type) for a lot cheaper.
Wendy, we've discussed this product before on this team and generally it is not recommended, especially for Celiacs. Some with gluten intolerance may find it effective for cross contamination issues. I question the advice of your doctor. This product is used for accidental intake of gluten rather than deliberately ingesting gluten foods.
I CANNOT recommend it or advising other members of this group to use it.

I have a gluten-intolerance and my Dr. suggested that if I feel like cheating on my gluten-free diet that I try Glutazyme. I just placed my 1st order. It's $20/60 pills with an $11 shipping charge. The shipping charge is the same no matter how many bottles you order.
Here is the information to order.
